Title: Punk 57
Genre: New Adult
Author: Penelope Douglas
Release Date: October 21, 2016
From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Douglas, comes the latest New Adult romance of love, hate, and everything in between…
“We were perfect together. Until we met.”
I can’t help but smile at the lyrics in her letter. She misses me.
In fifth grade, my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student, Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed.
It didn’t take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever…
And that was the start. For the next seven years, it was us.
Her letters are always on black paper with silver writing. Sometimes there’s one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She’s the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am.
We only had three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it?
Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name’s Ryen, loves Gallo’s pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances?
F*ck it. I need to meet her.
I just don’t expect to hate what I find.
He hasn’t written in three months. Something’s wrong. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha, neither would be a stretch.
Without him around, I’m going crazy. I need to know someone is listening. It’s my own fault. I should’ve gotten his phone number or picture or something.
He could be gone forever.
Or right under my nose, and I wouldn’t even know it.
*Punk 57 is a stand alone New Adult romance. It is suitable for ages 18+.
My Review –
4.5 Words hold Power Stars!!
After hearing so many wonderful things about Ms.Douglas’s work I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book and I’m so honored to have been picked to review a copy! I really enjoyed it!! I found this story to be so unique in the sense of how everything came to be between the main characters from letters to encounters. I liked the fact that I didn’t expect the twists and turns and had to take a breather to digest everything that went on. Words hold so much power and it’s amazing to see how in this story putting pen to paper can be an outlet for so many people, myself included. Punk 57 is about two pen pals Ryen Trevarrow and Misha Lare who have bonded over letters for years but things change when Misha runs into someone and the letters stop coming for Ryen. Everything isn’t as it seems in this dark tale.
Letters, unexpected encounters, music, lies, and love all collide!!
I feel like writing letters is such a lost art and to say I was ecstatic that this Ms.Douglas focused on that would be an understatement. Ms.Douglas not only created a novel to remember but one that makes me want to embrace me for me. Her writing was fantastic!! I’m so looking forward to picking up more of her books especially Corrupt!! 🙂
If you haven’t already One-Clicked it Buy it Today!! Be prepared to feel everything under the sun!! Also, you’ll be highlighting a lot of quotes because that hit your heart. I’m sorry if my review is vague but there is SO many things that happen within the pages of this book that would be super duper spoilerly to others but hopefully my review almost does it Justice!! I hope you devour it!! 4.5 Stars all Around!! 🙂
